The 5 BEST Tips for Beginner Golfers

The 5 Best Tips for Beginner Golfers 12/12/2017 More than almost any other sport, golf has an annoying tendency to look much simpler than it is.

How Smash Factor Helps Us Maximize Swing Speed

Mastering Smash Factor, Maximizing Speed 12/08/2017 You know how satisfying a solid drive can be. There’s the clean “thwack” of the club making contact. The spin of the ball.

How to Hit Irons: Know Your Distances

How to Hit Irons and Become a Better Golfer: Know Your Distances 11/20/2017 When talking about how to hit irons, one of the simplest ways to improve your golf game is also the most obvious: Know your distance. Know how far you’re hitting the golf ball. Now, you may be thinking that this advice is not only obvious – it’s also inevitable. You can see the flight of your ball. You can probably tell me how many shots were too short in your last round. And you certainly remember the drives that went exactly where you wanted them to. How is it possible to not know your distance? Well, what I’m talking about is exact yardage. I can’t tell you how many students come to the Todd Kolb Golf Academy with no idea how long their drive is. One of my first priorities as an instructor is to make sure they know their distances. Until they have those numbers, they cannot recognize patterns, test their consistency, and improve their game. The same is true for you. And to get started, you need to have the proper tools. Invest in a Launch Monitor When learning how to hit irons more effectively, the most helpful statistic is knowing the distance you actually hit each iron.  The surest way to know your exact distance is by using a launch monitor. A launch...
